Here are 3 separate encounters against NC State Troopers. The blue Mustang is Jane's Mustang on her way to work. I have equipped her car with a R1 in the front windshield and another R1 in the back glass. They are both on 1.50 with the front R1 handling K band duty at 70% with K block, TFS, and K filter on. They are both segged to 2-5-8 with everything else off on the rear R1. All it's looking for is 2-5-8-baby! The Red car is my Boss 302 with the R1 in the front set up just like Jane's. I have one of my Redline-O's in the back glass running only 2-5-8 with no K band or X band. The white car is my drive to work Mustang with the exact same set up that's in my Boss 302. In other words, we're running 3 seperate ghetto arrow set ups, and they are all killing it! Here are 3 encounters we've had within the last couple of days, one with each set up. Jane's encounter was a NC State Trooper a good bit ahead of her going in the same direction shooting forward facing 35.5 at cars coming at him and her 2 R1's ate it up! I have the rear R1 on a different Ka alert tone than the front so they don't blend in together. The other 2 alerts I got are pretty self explanatory.

Not much I/O action in my area (lucky me), but in somehow I'd like to have few encounters like that. Just want to see for myself how the R7 will do on hills and bends...
Great videos, I like the "ghetto" setup!

BTW @HackerPLEMC , the Redline you hear screaming it's @ss off in the back of my Boss 302 is yours! As you can see, it's still killing it!

Thanks for sharing those videos. All 3 cars with the ghetto arrows set up!! Good to to see that ghetto arrow set up in action. So if you want to mute the back glass detector, how do you do that? Auto mute? Or do you even care about muting the back glass detector?

I never have to mute the rear detectors because all they see is 33.8, 34.7 and 35.5! If One wanted to mute them however, you could use a "smart" hardwire kit for the rear detector and have the button close by you and extend the wires to the back. I simply have the front and rear detectors hardwired at the same fuse tap in the fuse box in all 3 cars. Works like a champ! How many times have you heard someone asking to be able to turn off K band on the rear antenna of their V1 or R7? That's where I got the idea! In case anybody is wondering, I've set up both K band and Ka 35.5 testing and run all 3 cars for hours and I got the same results running them together and apart. All 3 are the best set ups I've ever run including @VariableWave 's R7 that we tested and I ran for a week! I knew that My R1/Redline-O's were going to kill it, but I was unsure about running the dual R1 set up in Jane's car. Turns out, it's just as good if not better than the R1/Redlines on distance and I/O Q/T pickup!
